Dry aged US beef is great and has just the might amount of marbling. But of the beef at chain restaurants or in frozen foods is from the US or Australia so yes we need it.

I would question if Uber isn't being targeted for being a foreign company. I am sure they wouldn't go after Demaekan or Yamato / Sagawa...

Posted in: Is rugby in Japan on a roll after WorldCup, or will the 'rugby bubble' deflate? See in context

Sadly for the rugby team including Rich Michael this will prove to be flash in the pan - me many foreigners and just not kakko ii enough. Baseball, soccer, sumo, golf, and swimming (maybe the martial arts - judo) are the mainstays and everything else is just in the moment... including ping pong, tennis, wrestling, and basketball.... Rugby after the World Cup budget runs dry will wither....

Posted in: Trump blows his top over impeachment inquiry See in context

I'd be mad too after the fake Russian Collusion conspiracy, the Clinton funded dossier, Stormy's lawyer and all the airtime they can get by the media instead of real news items that matter to everyday people.

Posted in: U.S.-Japan trade deal hits snag as Tokyo seeks assurances on car tariffs See in context

YuriOtani's attitude is proof that a trade deal with Japan is meaningless given consumer prejudice toward anything not made in Japan. Just tax the cars and give it to the farmers and move on to a deal with China.

Posted in: Trump announces U.S.-China trade truce; talks to resume See in context

That simpleton is rewriting an destructive trade deal with a country that has had the most predatory trade practices short of the British Empire. That no one here is aware of that or how it has resulted in deflation for Japan is beyond me.

Posted in: Trump says U.S.-Japan security pact has to be changed See in context

@Zichi - I see so they own this in perpetuity no matter how much it actually emasculates Japan?

Japan needs to become a country on a par with China and should be able to project its power and leadership unfettered by the US.

Posted in: Trump expected to watch sumo on May 26 during Japan visit See in context

@Zichi - Abe showed him how to do that. CNN only showed Trump do it for whatever reason!

"So he'll bow and seat on the floor or will they provide a chair. Hope he can show more dignity than on the last visit when he feeding koii with Abe, just tip the whole feed box upside down."

The expression on Honda's face might be a clue to the team's chances tonight. Nishino-san might lack the true spirit of Japan which is yamato damashi. Fighting is in our DNA so I am rooting for Samurai Blue!
